Candidate Preservice Assessment of Student Teaching (CPAST) Form

CPAST Form is a valid and reliable formative and summative assessment during the student teaching practicum. The assessment has two subscales: Pedagogy (13 rows) and Dispositions (8 rows). And each of the 21 rows contains detailed descriptors of observable, measurable behaviors to guide scoring decisions. University supervisors are required to complete a self-paced 90-minute online training module before using the instrument. And an additional “Look Fors” resource is also available to provide and elaborate on the qualities and behaviors for a given level of performance of each row (i.e., evidence and sources of evidence).
